Mercer Island Community Fund makes music

The Mercer Island Community Fund recently presented a grant to the Mercer Island High School choir and orchestra departments as scholarship opportunities for financially struggling students. The scholarship money will be used to defray some of the costs of a music festival trip that will take place over Memorial Day Weekend in Vancouver, B.C., and will include the Bel Canto Choir, Midnight Blues Jazz Choir, the Philharmonic Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra.

The MI Community Fund has come through yet again for members of our blessed MI community. The gratitude of the choir and orchestra departments, along with the students receiving assistance, is beyond measure. Our students and teachers thank you, MICF, for your caring generosity and support of these wonderfully talented and dedicated high school students. You have made the dreams of a number of students a reality.
